Adolescent Family Life Program (AFLP) is a comprehensive case-management and home-visiting outreach for pregnant and parenting teens and their families. Services include periodic screenings and assessments, referral and connections to necessary services, including healthcare and parenting education. Comprehensive information on educational and vocational programs and independent-living skills also is provided. The goals of the AFLP program are to improve birth outcomes, reduce repeat pregnancies, improve health, developmental and education outcomes for teens and their children, and help teen parents to become productive and independent consumers of services for themselves and their children.
AFLP is a voluntary program that is targeted toward pregnant and/or parenting teens under the age of 19 in Bakersfield, Lamont, Arvin, Frazier Park, Delano and McFarland. There are no income or residency restrictions and once enrolled, teens may remain in the program until the age of 20. There are no fees for this program.
